Inspiration derives from the beautiful checked knitting patterns used throughout the nineteenth century in the Scottish border area of Sanquhar, near Dumfries. Originally worked on very fine needles and a smooth yarn to show off the design perfectly, Sanquhar check was traditionally worked in two contrasting colours. This workshop will provide an expert introduction and refresher course in two colour knitting.
